Unformatted text preview: AND student-centered. Note the differences! When looking at a waveform on an oscilloscope screen, describe what the sound SOUNDS like (pitch? loudness? Is it a tone, or noise?) A mass wiggles on the end of a spring. Represent the motion in words and graphs. Predict the tone you'll hear if it's vibrating in air. How would changing the stiffness of the spring, or the weight of the object, change the tone? Predict what would happen if you start jiggling the spring. How can you make the motion get VERY strong (and correspondingly, make the sound it produces nice and loud?)...
